The Forest Lumber & Cooperage manufactures cedar barrel hot tubs, cedar barrel saunas, and cedar barrel water cisterns. They use the cooperage method which is the art of traditional hand crafted barrel making which has been used for hundreds of years.

35 years ago, The Forest Lumber & Cooperage started up in Sooke, BC and is still thriving today. They now offer FSC certified cedar and have Rainforest Alliance Certification. Their Rainwater Collection is perfect for architects that are involved in LEED projects. One such project they were recently involved in was providing 10 cedar water cisterns for a private school in Hawaii. The cedar cisterns have a potable plastic liner which makes the water safe for drinking.

The Forest Lumber & Cooperage is involved in every single step of the production of their products from the quality of wood they use for the rough cedar cants, to re-sawing, dry kilning, and molding, to building and finishing. They ship their products all over the world with majority of their sales in Canada and Europe.
